Our dinner was excellent, service on point. Utensils came individually wrapped in paper,
bread came in a basket wrapped in plastic. Tables spaced appropriately. Will be back.
Delicious as always. Service excellent as always.
Wonderful experience! First time eating here and will definitely be back. Food and cocktails were great. We were not rushed and enjoyed everything!
Great food and service!
Loved the service, the setting and the food was excellent.
Kitchen seems better than ever. Everything they make is delicious and well executed. Service and staff excellent and welcoming as ever. Owner Tony on the floor making sure things are perfect. Welcome back!
Had dinner with a friend. Service was friendly and very good. Food as always delicious.
we wrntceitb another couple who had never been to tbar , they loved it, food was great, guys shared delicious porterhouse, i had salmon abs friend had turkey burger, we shared two tbar salads and we love that they split it for us, friend brought bottle of wine and corkage fed wad very reasonable . felt covid protocols were flowfc , plexiglass and everything g wad wrapped and sanitary , however felt like it was more than 50 percent capacity , however we we fine as were sll double vaccinated. so glad to have thar bs k !!
Always EXCELLENT FOOD, however our server was curt and had “attitude”. Next time we will avoid his station.
Just the night out we needed after being vaccinated. Yes its a bit of a splurge but it is worth it. Generous pours from the bar. Recommend the Prime aged rib eye - it easily feeds 2 guys & the warm octopus appetizer. all 3 salads what you'd expect & no attitude if you split it. Tried the apple crisp. will try something different next time.
Good food but they basically kicked us our after 90 minutes so we didn't have achance for coffee or dessert.
Food and service were excellent as always. The bread is amazing.
Food Service Ambiance WONDERFUL!
If you want to catch COVID or something else, dine here! 35% capacity all crammed into 25% of the entire space! Tables too close to each other. Barriers between tables are open at the bench seat sides so you’re eating 1-2 feet away without protection from the table next to you. I supported them with take out and crazy high tips for the past year and treated poorly when dining in.
Hostess was not nice and had a bad attitude. I arrived 10 minutes early and was told if I get seated the 90 minute table limit starts then or I could wait until my reservation time and then be seated. Table was empty, it was an early reservation and what did it really matter if I sat down ten minutes early? Perhaps I might have had an additional cocktail and increase the total spent? Poorly managed.
Always an excellent time at T-Bar. The food is consistent, whether it’s the Rib Eye or the Chicken Milanese. Cooked to perfection with a helpful staff. It’s one of the restaurants that I always come back to time and time again
Waiter was excellent but hostess rushed dinner despite us arriving half hour early to an empty restaurant. Felt pushed out.
The burgers were phenomenal. In this era of covid, it felt very safe.
The food is always fantastic here, the service top notch and the ambience very nice. Covid-19 is taken very seriously, with social distancing, silverware sealed in plastic, temp checks, hand sanitizer and beautiful partitions between the tables. The bread is absolutely amazing, especially the rosemary one and the olive filled one. Love it here.
The food is amazing and the service was terrific. There was definitely more than 25% capacity in the restaurant which made us very nervous.
Another amazing dinner even with COVID 19
Had dinner with the wife and kids
I took a friend for dinner for her birthday and we sat outside on a nice night. I noticed there were no heat lamps but fortunately we did not need them. Our waitress, Katie, was great. We shard a sushi appetizer and I had the Sea bass and my friend the Filet Mignon. both were prepared very well and delicious.
We shared a strawberry shortcake dessert which was a great ending to a wonderful meal.
Here is where I was a bit shocked. The prices were quite expensive (probably raised them due to Covid). I have eaten here many times before and I don't recall spending this much on dinner.
Since, it was for a birthday celebration I brushed it off but not sure it is a place to go for a "bite" to eat at these prices.
My favorite ❤️
Loved everything and great covid precap
We love it there!!!
Food and service was great. Love the lucite barriers for indoor dining. Oh and don’t let me forget the amazing bread basket. Can’t. Wait to go back
AMAZING! thats all i can say... the food, the drinks, everything!!!!!
Food was terrific. Safe and inviting set up for Covid safety. Can’t wait to come back again soon!
Service and food were excellent. Great neighborhood restaurant with a friendly staff
Everything was perfect- menu- service- food preparation
Heat lamps would have been a plus but we had, yet again, a great dining experience.
Noise and ambiance poor because of outdoor eating.
We dined at TBar on Sunday and they are doing an amazing job with this covid situation. Prewrapped silverware for each course. Service was wonderful and attentive. Hubby and I had a wonderful meal and I’m so glad Brussels sprouts are back! We sat inside and they have partitions between tables and windows open for ventilation. Cant wait to go back!
Way TOO COLD inside with windows open. I understand Covid concerns BUT not an enjoyable dinner. Guess we’ll wait til weather warms up or Covid is GONE.
A loyal customer
The salad with poached shrimp was tasteless, Iceberg lettuce and the dressing had no taste.
The french fries were good.
A glass of wine was $19 and the cab was nothing special
We arrived at the restaurant for our reservation only to find the restaurant closed.
Delicious and amazing as always
Careful outdoor dining. Food great, service not as efficient. Still one of my favorites and will continue to go back. Hope others agree & support this great neighborhood restaurant.
TBar has done a great job with COVID related practices. Tables well spaced apart, cutlery provided in plastic packaging, etc.
The food was fantastic.
It was lovely and safe
